Friday, September 16th, 2011

I did this owl on Dean, he let me do whatever i wanted with the color so it was a lot of fun. The fairy was done a the Rochester convention.

Gypsy, Butterfly and Hound

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

I’ve been getting to do a lot of lady head profiles lately, here’s one on Nicky. I did this butterfly on RC as a walk-in. The bull dog I did a couple months ago on David in Seattle, it’s from an old George Burchett design. I sure miss all that light to take photos in out there.


Crow, Mare and Squab

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Here are some new ones- The crow I did on my friend Eric and has a lot of tiny stuff that I don’t usually do in it. A nice change of pace. The horse is on tony who has the gypsy woman from earlier, and I did this pigeon on Vincent at Under the Needle during my last trip back to Seattle.


Seek the wolf in thyself.

In 28 days I will be hurled into the sickening New York summer. I cannot wait. In the meantime I’ve been working like crazy trying to get as many tattoos finished as possible before I leave. This is one I did on Vincent, I could have drawn a wolf head but this old one is perfect so why bother.

Death lives every day

Here is a Pharaoh’s Horses tattoo I did on Lyle. I outlined and did the black shading a while ago and we just got a chance to finish it. The rose with initials/dates was on a new customer named Daniel, it was his first professional tattoo and I think we were both really happy with it. The native girl is on girlfriend Heather, her Grandfather was a native cowboy and the DW/ was his brand. This was also the first tattoo I got to do with the new shader Nick Ackman built for me. You can see his machines and tattoos here. 

Only bones

This is a new tattoo I did on my good friend Metalmike. It’s from a Merauder song which is hilarious. The tattoo looks like it would be on the side of your step dad’s motorcycle so I think it was a success. He has a lot of really amazing tattoos like the Seth Wood chest piece you can see part of in this picture, so I was flattered when he asked me to tattoo him. The Mexican skeleton I did on a guy named Chris who I had never tattooed before, he was a nice guy and I really like how his tattoo turned out.

A rose and two paintings of Doc King designs.

The rose is on my ladyfriend Heather, it’s from a painting I did a long time ago and we just got around to tattooing it. It was a lot of fun to do despite the fact that tattooing your partner is really stressful. The two paintings are from old Doc King designs, I had some new paint I wanted to try out so I did these.
